[vtkusers] clean-up VTK_LEGACY code

Dear VTK Users,

This is a summary of an announcement and discussion on VTK Developers list.

We are removing the VTK code marked as deprecated for versions 6.1 (this
was released on 2014-01-21) and earlier. This means that any code marked as
deprecated after that date is still in, so people will still have plenty of
time to change their code.


Users who update VTK regularly are warned using the VTK_LEGACY_REPLACED_BODY
mechanism if they call a deprecated function.

If they want, users can turn on VTK_LEGACY_REMOVE to remove all deprecated
code from VTK. This is the best way to test your use of deprecated code.

Note that  VTK_LEGACY_REMOVE is a CMake option that can be turned on when
building VTK.

Please let me know if you have any comments or concerns,

Thank you,
